POETRY, ART, AND BLACK POWER

Mike Hamlin, author of A Black Revolutionary’s Life in Labor: Black Workers Power in Detroit, spoke on a frigid February evening at Detroit’s Main Public Library. The mix of Mike’s Mike Library Podium2comments, the music and the poetry transformed the cold outside into a very heart-warming and inspiring event.  Some of the students who were there said that learning about Mike’s life and political work is an encouragement to them to press on with their social justice activism.

We are grateful to the amazing artists who joined us. Gloria House read poetry from Mike’s book, Rockeith Jackson shared his inspiring artwork, and the Library’s technical staff beautifully crafted our attempt at a multimedia presentation. Thank you everyone for your support.
